[ chanting ] that's what it looked like in southern california yesterday. the united steel workers' union is on strike at nine oil refineries mostly in california and texas. the strike is in response to a breakdown in contract talks between the union and shell oil which is serving as the lead company in national negotiations. the plant in martinez is more than 400 workers and they plan to join the strike as soon as the refinery can be shut down safely. it's probably going to happen sometime today. one local expert says gas prices will not likely go up immediately. but if the strike drags on, expect to pay more.
>> if the strike goes on a listening time, we might start -- long time, we might start to see prices rise. and in california runs on a very tight supply demand balance. >> reporter: the topics in dispute include wages, health care costs, safety, and the use of contractors in staffing. by the way this is the largest worker walkout in this industry in 30 years. live in martinez, ryan takeo, kpix 5. half of the martinez plant is already shut down due to plant maintenance. while that refinery will shut down, the others will continue production with backup workers. happening today, former stanford university swimmer brock turner is due to be arraigned in a palo alto courtroom. he's accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman near fraternity row last month. since the allegations turner has quit the swim team and withdrawn from the university. an actor who appeared on the power rangers tv series has been arrested on suspicion of

from 35% to 28%. capital gains taxes on the wealthy americans though would go up. starting today, san francisco will accept applications for its new short- term residential rental registry. the way to put controls on home rentals through airbnb and similar services, they will be able to rent out their homes for up to 30 days at a time. and no more than 90 days in a year. time now is 5:09. a big night for big businesses buying ad time during this year's super bowl. still to come, what we saw during this year's commercials. >> and another winter storm zeroing in on the northeast. the impact it's having on travel right here in the bay area. >> and it is only 5:09 and yet we tied another weather record today. good morning everyone. i'll talk about that and you're not going to like it. >> we have confirmed this is a three car crash blocking two lanes. heading to the dublin interchange. right before 680 and the already starting to see a little bit of a backup.

>> they can't get us back out until tuesday. so we're kind of hoping that we can get out sooner rather than later. >> more flight delays and cancellations are expected today. boston is expected to get 9 to 16 inches of snow. parts of new york, vermont, new hampshire, connecticut, and rhode island are also expected to get good amounts of snow. >> should make for a good parade tomorrow. >> i know. >> delay that a bit? >> the patriots are floating through town. well, this is groundhog day, if you didn't know that, and punxsutawney, pennsylvania is center of all the action this morning. >> legend has it if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. so here's the verdict. >> yes. a shadow i see. you can start this winter hashtag #sixmoreweeksofwinter. >> well, people are not happy about that as you can hear. the tradition has been going on
since 1887 but no one's kept track of the number of groundhogs who have played the role of phil over the years. >> i would have put a million dollars that we were going to get six more weeks of winter. >> really just saying? >> at least out on the east coast. >> too bad -- you didn't put $1 million down. >> punxsutawney was hanging out in san mateo might be a different story. >> still looks confused. poor phil. let's go outside and unfortunately the quiet start to the commute is kind of over. we have this issue going on now near the dublin interchange. in fact a couple of things going on at 580. the first one is the three car crash blocking two lanes. they're working to clear it to the right hand shoulder but there's a bit of a delay already heading to the dublin interchange. and then farther east, we're trying to confirm with chp what the debris is but there's some in the road may even be a stall and then a couple of other cars hit it. so you know that's causing a little delay coming into the love love. livermore valley. combined with the usual slow traffic out of the tracy area and you know what you get. kind of the commute has really
begun for that stretch. here's a live look at the sensors on highway 4. down to 33 miles per hour in about i don't care approaching -- antioch apreaching a. street. past the road work though everything looks better. it's still really quiet across the golden gate bridge. just kind of late the see no traffic aloss the golden gate. a few cars heading southbound. and the bay bridge no problems at all. they never really had any overnight road work that we saw so everything is clear right now into san francisco. again no metering lights just yet all the approaches are fine. but this is the time to go. they've been switching the metering lights on pretty early. closer to 5:40 lately so if you want to beat the rush head out now. here's a live look at the san mateo bridge. no delay in either direction between the east bay and foster city. and i promise you a little new thing about the ferry. they're actually adding an extra ferry today at 8:40 a.m. between lark spur and san francisco. everything else is on time. regular schedule for b.a.r.t.,
the rest of golden gate ferries caltrain and ace. that's kcbs traffic. ad update on the -- another update on the rainy forecast. we have three computer models we depend on. two of them are saying the north bay is going to be hammered with heavy rain from 5 to 12 inches between thursday night through sunday. the other computer model says lesser amounts of rain but nevertheless it is going to rain here in the bay area by tend of the week. -- the end of the week. right now as we begin the workweek we have partly cloudy conditions in san francisco. with an air temperature of 53 degrees. santa rosa at 43 and now reporting a half a mile visibility due to some pockets of dense fog. so here's what you need to know. out the door this morning, some partly cloudy to clear conditions. clear in livermore and partly cloudy right now in san francisco. some mild temperatures and what i mean by that it's not freezing as you're heading on out. we have so far as of today, seen 42 days of no rain. right here in the bay area. we've had a mid-winter break from any kind of precipitation.
this ties a record set back in 1962 to 1963. and then again the heavy rain will begin in the north baby late thursday night. the exact location right now places this in the north bay event with lesser amounts south of the golden gate bridge but nevertheless, everybody is going to get wet. right now rain showers across the northwestern section of the state of california. we see the rain well to the north of us but this area of low pressure way upstream. that's making a district aim towards the area and -- direct aim towards the bay area and our heaviest day will be on friday with gusty winds as well as far as precipitation is concerned. especially at the coast and higher elevations. today we are dry for the most part from top to bottom except we see that rain right there around the area to the north. monterey at 66 degrees. meanwhile our tvs, boy up to about -- temperatures boy up to about ten degrees above normal. instead 71 in san jose. outside number today will be 73 degrees that will be in gilroy. otherwise we'll hang on to the mild conditions all the way through about wednesday. then we'll start to see the
clouds filter in on thursday. leading to the rain showers overnight friday. rain and wind. we could see the possibility of some advisories issued in the northern portion of the district for urban and small stream flood advisories and possibly see minor flooding. i suspect the showers will come in waves once it begins overnight on thursday through friday. on again off again through sunday. but we're going to have to watch this because a whole lot of rain all at once is not really something we want. because of the flooding and the grounds is really sky. >> and resorts are probably going wow we really need it. >> have to go up really high. >> it's a start. >> all right thanks. well, for some people watching the super bowl yesterday, it was all about the commercials. >> yeah for a lot of people reporter andrew spencer takings a look at some of those you might have missed. >> reporter: a few super bowl ads touched on a common theme. >> daddy? >> reporter: this dove commercial in particular focusing on dads and declaring what makes man stronger is showing that he cares.
automakers touched on fatherhood as well as with this ad featuring high powered nissans and a reunion between father and son. bmw reached back to 1994 for a few laughs. >> can you explain what internet is? >> reporter: katie couric and bryant gumbel could out the technology in the company's new all electric car. >> can you twerk? >> reporter: fiat went a different route running an ad featuring a little blue pill and the company's bigger more powerful crossover. things got even sillier from there in super bowl spots from doritos and mercedes. other ads like nationwide relied on a bit of star power to get people's attention. no need to reinvent the wheel in universal's super bowl spots, they teased ahead to several upcoming movie sequels. mobile games had a couple as well. the one getting the movie treatment from actor liam neeson. >> i will have my revenge. >> reporter: the average 30
second spots that set companies back $4.5 million this year. exhibitioning its own od -- the nfl ran a psa as part of the no more initiative against domestic violence. >> if you have an emergency or not? >> yes. >> and you are unable to talk because? >> right. >> reporter: i'm andrew spencer reporting. >> yeah i think a lot of the ads tugged at your heart strings more than making you laugh but i was kind of engrossed in the game to be honest with you. >> yeah. >> i was more into the game than the commercials. >> i know but the commercials are such a big part of it and he didn't mention -- what it's like to be a girl or run like a girl. so that was a really good one. >> that was a good one as well. it is 5:20 on your monday morning. coming up, terrifying moments for two hikers when they take a dangerous fall down the icy mountain up in oregon. the unexpected heroes who were in the right place at the right time. >> and good morning everybody. you've got to admit. if you love football, the super bowl xlvix held your attention
